Urgent Letter Appeal For Medical Treatment Of Jerome White-Bey

Tuesday, March 30 2010 Infoshop News

Jerome White-Bey is the founder and president of the Missouri Prisoner
Labour Union, an organization of Missouri prisoners and their outside
supporters who are organizing around labour and other prison conditions.
Since the founding of the MPLU, Jerome has been subject to administrative
harassment and retaliation. He was in the "hole" (administrative
segregation) for two years following the formation of the MPLU and has
constantly been moved in and out of segregation since.

Jerome is now appealing for help with a letter campaign. He has diabetes
which has caused a kidney infection that has lasted for several months
now. Despite several requests made by him to the doctors there the prison
officials are denying him any medical treatment for the kidney infection.
He has had no treatment, no tests, no medication and he is very worried
about his health and the effect the long lasting infection will have on
him. In his own words:

"There is a plot against my well being. It is clear to me now, so the only
sure way to protect myself from ill willed people is to build a wall of
security around me, because when people on the outside show an
overwhelming concern about our well being, then that stills the hand of
the evil doers. So anyone that would like to write, call the prison or
visit me is welcome to do so."

Please write letters of complaint to:
